Frank Chapman Residential Visit.

Day One

Children took part in team building activities. A night walk took them to the famous 'Magic Tree' a five hundred year old Beech tree deep in the heart of the woodland. The children enjoyed walking through the woodland without torches as the light reduced, and children experienced darkness without any light pollution. A truly memorable walk. The children (and staff) all slept very well.

Day Two

The morning saw glorious weather and the four activity groups all did very well at the four activities. Group One spent the morning on bikes and impressed as they developed off road skills. Group Two developed their archery skills, with some golds being hit. Group Three worked on the climbing wall, with all children gaining in confidence. Finally Group four enjoyed tackling the High Ropes activity.

And then the rain came! Lots of rain, some very, very  impressive thunder and then more rain. This meant that the planned activities could not safely take place so the activities planned for Friday morning were completed instead. This activity developed the map and orienteering skills of the children as we made full use of the centre grounds. The night time activity of 101, where children work in pairs to answer questions as they go around the grounds was very well done.

Day Three

A very,very hot day. Children worked in two groups and took part in Night Line, an activity where they had to trust to their senses as they tackled a track through an area of the woodland blindfolded. Session two was geo caching where children worked in groups to use GPS technology to locate items. The night saw all children tackling a nature trail.                             

Day Four

Children worked in their four groups to take part in activities....High ropes, Archery, Cycling and Climbing. All groups were at their very best on day four...with so many children finding success. Our night time activity saw us making our final journey into the woodland, as darkness fell.

Day Five

The morning was very busy as rooms were tidied and suitcases packed before breakfast. The final activity sessions of bike riding, climbing, archery and high ropes were completed by the final groups and, after lunch the journey home.

 

The week was very successful and children and accompanying adults should have returned with slightly dirtier clothes and in need of sleep, but with memories of activities and experiences that should last.
